Thank you for supporting the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre
The Triathlon of Compassion is Victoria’s Sexual Assault Centre’s largest annual fundraiser. Now more than ever we need the support of our community to maintain our services for survivors. COVID-19 is having a massive impact on the health and safety of women and Trans people in our communities.
Please consider supporting survivors in this extraordinary time by pledging your support for the Triathlon of Compassion. Join us to reach our goal of raising $10,000 for the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre.
Sexual assault is a power-based crime. During times of rising uncertainty and stress, there is a correlation with increased risk of gender-based violence, as people try to gain control. The implementation of important public health directives to stay home has increased vulnerability for people whose homes are not safe. For those who have experienced a historical sexual assault, these uncertain times can activate past trauma.
We are still here for survivors. During this unprecedented time, our workers are ready to provide support to survivors who need us now.
Your pledge raising helps provide life-changing counselling, support, and clinic services for survivors of sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse and valuable youth-led prevention education in our community.
To find out more about the programs and services you are supporting, and how we have adapted to provide services safely during COVID-19, please visit www.vsac.ca.
Since the Triathlon of Compassion began, event participants like you have helped to fundraise over $355,000 for the programs and services of the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre! Thank you!
